After eight months of inactivity, the historic Point in Capo d’Orlando (ME) has reopened its doors under the format and concept of the Mondadori Store, the largest network of bookstores in Italy. The official opening to the public – Monday 27 November – will be preceded by the official opening on Sunday 26 November from 6.30 p.m., with local dignitaries in attendance.
“We are proud and honoured to reopen the store in Capo d’Orlando, which has always been a meeting place and a reference point for the entire district since 1965,” said Mondadori Store franchisee, Anna Emanuela Coci, former owner of an independent stationery store. “After an eight-month closure, and with the support of Mondadori Store, we will revive the bookshop with commitment, passion, and determination. We intend to offer our customers a wide range, not only of books, but also of cultural events that will attract all the public in the area”, finished Coci.
Capo d’Orlando’s Mondadori Point, operated as a franchise, is part of the greater network project to create a real cultural network throughout Italy and offer meeting and gathering places for readers of all ages. Thanks to a team of professional booksellers who will guide customers in their choices, satisfying their reading tastes, and also due to its strategic and central location, which offers the possibility of organising book signings and literary events, the Capo d’Orlando bookstore provides the public with a centre exclusively dedicated to the world of books, culture and entertainment.
The store, which has a surface area of approximately 90 metres square, focuses mainly on books, with a selection of about 4,000 titles, ranging from the great classics to best sellers, including fiction, non-fiction and other categories. And for young readers, there’s the We are Junior format, which includes educational and illustrated games to stimulate the imagination with the strangest stories, as well as the innovative Just Comics department, dedicated to manga and comics. To expand the store’s offer, there is also an area dedicated to stationery products, gift boxes, gift cards and a selection of eReaders.
The Capo d’Orlando bookstore also serves readers online: customers can stay updated on all the initiatives planned through its Instagram page. They can also get in touch with the bookstore via the digital services on Mondadoristore.it to check for the availability of a book, order it and pick it up at the store by choosing from a catalogue of over 1 million titles.
The new Mondadori Point is part of the renewal and development plan of Mondadori Store, the largest bookstore network in Italy, with more than 500 stores in cities and smaller towns. A cultural network active throughout the country and also online with the e-commerce site Mondadoristore.itand the bookclub formula, which, in addition to books – the core of the offer –, provides entertainment, events and multichannel services, to reach more than 20 million customers every year.
